Solo Swimming in Santorini

Journal Entry: Mon Nov 5, 2007, 11:19 AM



I recently went solo swimming to Santorini.

1st October 2007 - 12th October 2007.

Santorini is a small island in the Aegean, in Greece:

Santorini

I visited it alone for a few days, staying in Kamari. Few people knew that I actually went there:

Kamari

I swam 2 kilometers every day, this distance back and forth:

Kamari Beach

Waking up at 7.00am every morning by Red Hot Chili Peppers - Snow as an alarm irrevocably destroyed the first few seconds of the song -- they remind me of freezing cold water ever since.

It was very enjoyable, allowed me to spend some time on my own, and make some decisions about what I want to do in life, in general. Yet again it was lonely and tiring sometimes, but I still liked it. Not sure if I'd do it again. It helped though.

I love RHCP, too.

I've had my "Hung Up" by Madonna as my ringtone for something like two years, and it has the unique position of permanently altering my reaction to two different songs -- the one by Madonna and "Gimme Gimme Gimme" by ABBA.

Shoot me for fagging out on you with my music tastes. :-)

Το κινητό σου, πάντως, δεν το αποχωρίστηκες ;-). Ελπίζω να πέρασες καλά.

Πράγματι. Πέρασα καλά, περίπου όπως περίμενα, και πήρα απαντήσεις σε ορισμένα προσωπικά ερωτήματα που με απασχολούσαν.

mhmm, it's nice to be on your own for a length of time. Not too long. But long enough to reflect on the world...without having the world there to be in your face showing you what it's really like.

2km a day? Fantastic. I admire your determination and your fitness to do such a thing. :)

I hope your reflectiveness resulted in answers, if you were searching for them. If not, time alone is always well spent.

I was indeed looking for answers. And, really, reflectiveness resulted in finding them. Thank you :heart:

Wow, you must be brave for something like this :-O. But nonetheless, well done.
And why, oh why this journal has this strange emo taste? :paranoid: I don't know if it's just me, but every time someone mentions loneliness and thinking about life, that reminds me of emo people... lol.
Anyway, you definitely deserved a :hug: for braveness :heart:.
